On Thursday, Nunez’s family was in court

His two sisters were in grief.

“I’m fighting as hard as I can, and I’ll fight until I can’t fight anymore. I’ll fight until my brother gets the justice he deserves,” said Virginia Nuñez.

Virginia Núñez and her sister Leandra Rubio are sad and angry at the murder of their brother (25-year-old Raul Jose Roberto Núñez), who also went by Bobby.

They described him as a family glue.

“What I do to call me, what I do to hug, what I do to hear his voice again …” said Virginia.

Earlier this month, Bobby was shot dead at a family party.

His girlfriend Stacy Zurita was also shot and she didn’t survive.

The family says Bobby tried to protect his girlfriend.

“My brother was always a hero. He was always a hero, and it’s terrible because it killed him,” Leandra said.

In today’s court, two shooters appeared in court.

They are a father and son, 40-year-old Gerald Zurita and 19-year-old Leobaldo Zurita.

Both pleaded not guilty to murder.

“How can I take the lives of my brother and sister, and are you still going to plead not guilty?” Leandra said.

His son’s lawyer states that his client could be sentenced to death if convicted.

“It’s part of a drive-by and part of multiple murders-a situation that could expose him to life imprisonment without death or parole if they turn out to be true,” he said. Said Ralph Torres.

The father and son will return to court on September 29 for a preliminary hearing.
